      I want people with dial-up to know something is actually going to happen
      if they wait.

      Here is what I am using now:

      TITLE="LOADING...Delks Bluff Bridge">

      I get a "tool tip" display in IE but no alt or title text showing.

                  Is it possible to have a message display while an image is displaying.
                  I want people with dial-up to know something is actually going to happen if they wait.

                    it makes sense, sorta, because 9 times out of 10, background pictures
                    are just "fluff."

                        Hi As far as I know the ALT shows up for people who turn there images off for faster browsing, I would think you need to add some sort off script to your page

                          Hi
                          As far as I know the ALT shows up for people who turn there images off for
                          faster browsing, I would think you need to add some sort off script to your
                          page to do that ,the size of the image means the browser has to think less
                          all though I would have thought the ALT info would appear as soon as the
                          page loads the actual image comes last .
                          THANKYOU DAVE M

                              position:relative for the surrounding div is needed
                              to position the image relative to the div and not
                              to the window.
